Discover the cultural and historical treasures of Havana as you're treated to 5-star service at the Iberostar Parque Central. You will be mesmerised by the beautiful Spanish colonial style architecture evident on the exterior and interior. But this establishment combines traditional beauty with modern conveniences such as flat-screen TV and a mini bars in the rooms. The grilled cutlets, steak and ribs offered by the hotel's El Paseo restaurant are simply to die for. You may find that four nights of this lavish accommodation and good eating too short but you will have 10 more nights of pretty much the same when you head to the resort town of Varadero. Here you will be staying at the Sandals Royal Hicacos. The beautiful tropical gardens that cover the hotel's compound and the picturesque beaches at its doorstep just begin to describe the delights you will be enjoying during your Cuban holiday.
